Nigeria-based Collins Osayamwen knows about perseverance. He has faced enormous challenges when trying to launch a career that was unrecognized in Africa. After losing thousands dollars in course registrations when his Travel Visa applications were rejected multiple times, Collins finally found a way to travel to Europe and America to learn new career skills. Yet the challenges continued. Limited finances meant sleeping in airports and getting creative with expenses. None of this deterred him, in fact it strengthened his resolve. Collins persevered and later became a Board Director for the International Facility Management Association.
On this week’s show, it’s all about Visionary Leadership with our Guest, Steve Cody, Founder of The Better Software Company & Rückify.
Steve Cody launched his career with humble roots; he was 15 years old when he turned his entrepreneurial aspirations into reality with just $1200, a squeegee, a bucket, and a dream. Over his career, Steve became a Serial Entrepreneur, starting 15 local and national businesses in the service, rental, e-commerce and retail markets which have generated over 250 million in sales. During this time, he became frustrated with the dozens of software applications and IT systems that he would have to cobble together and support. Steve started to wonder what things could be like if there was one solution that could help him run numerous aspects of these businesses. That vision eventually became a reality when he hired a software developer to custom-design a solution to his specifications.
